CAS Colours & Sketches Guest Designer Take 3


Hi there!  I'm back for my third week of guest designing for CAS Colours & Sketches.  

This week we have a colour challenge:


These are classic bright Stampin' Up colours this week - some of the first I ever bought.  (You don't have to use SU colours - just match your colours as closely as possible).  The Avery Elle butterfly was stamped, fussy cut and popped up on foam tape over the leaves and stitched arch.  You can't see it but the leaves are covered with clear Wink of Stella and I've scattered some gems around as well.  The sentiment is Altenew and I like the clean lines of the font against the busy layers of die cuts.

Be sure to check out the inspiration from the Design Team and then play along!  You have until 6pm Eastern Time on Monday, 27 March.    


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Textured White) Bazzill, (Old Olive, Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Butterfly from Butterflies) Avery Elle, (Sentiment from Bejeweled) Altenew
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Leaves) Papertrey Ink, (Stitched Arch) My Favourite Things
Glitter:  (Clear Wink of Stella) Zig
Gems:  Recollections
